Already a critical success for the PlayStation Mobile, today Laughing Jackal announced that their hit game Hungry Giraffe is making it’s way over to the PS Vita as well – the first of their PS Vita titles!
When released as a PlayStation mini Hungry Giraffe was downloaded over 100,000 times and was also the first mini to get a 10/10 review from Official PlayStation Magazine UK, who called it: “…as cute as a puppy with an inside-out ear and so addictive that it’s likely to make you miss your stop on the bus and not really care.”
For the brand new Vita version of Hungry Giraffe, apart from improved visuals, Laughing Jackal have also added:
- Trophies – Show off your giraffe feeding skills with Laughing Jackal’s shiny range of Trophies
- Online Leaderboards – Compare your Hungry Giraffe scores with the best players from around the world.
- All-new Store menu – Eat calories in-game then spend them on upgrades and power-ups in the Store.
- Three new skins – Fed up of gobbling your way from the savannah to the skies as a giraffe? Then why not use our fabulous reindeer, emu and snake skins.
- Brand new Angel Feather power-up – If you find yourself falling to your almost certain doom why not try and catch yourself with the ever-useful Angel Feathers?
- Amazing upgrades – Use your calories to unlock later Stages, nerf the effects of poison, pills and weights, get more boost from low-calorie foods, store more Hard Hats, give Chillies a better kick and more!
